Good Samaritan Announces the Arrival of a New Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner

Good Samaritan is proud to announce the arrival of one of our newest nurse practitioners, Kelsey Cummins, NP-C. Kelsey specializes in Palliative Care. She previously worked at Good Samaritan as a staff nurse on the Hospice Unit and, most recently, was the nurse manager of Hospice and Palliative Care. Kelsey received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Vincennes University and her Masters of Science at the University of Southern Indiana. Having experience working at the hospital, Kelsey knew she wanted to stay at Good Samaritan as a nurse practitioner. “I have always loved science and how the human body works,” said Kelsey. “I enjoy the day-to-day challenges of providing individualized care. Good Samaritan is home to me and the staff working here are my family.”

She chose to work in palliative care because of the special connections she makes with the patient and their families at such a sensitive time in their lives. Kelsey resides in Sumner, Illinois. When she is not caring for patients, she enjoys traveling, playing softball, gardening, watching Chicago Cubs baseball, and spending time with her family and friends.
